Zymol (car shampoo and liquid wax), Meguires (gel tire dressing and vinyl cleaner), and P21s (wheel cleaner). Occasionally I use some stuff from Griott's garage.

damn man, that's going all out

I wash my car with this green car soap I picked up at kash n' karry, I clean my white wheels either with the same soap or a normal watered down dish detergent, I wipe down my engine bay with 409 from under the sink "It cuts Grease", and usually I wax it with some turtle wax :D

Am I lazy or is the world uptight?

i use turtle wax finish 2001 to wash it, meguirs tire shine gel for....well tires. armor all wipes for the dash or just some swiffer cloths, and meguirs gold class car wax every couple months and their quick detailer every time i wash the car. as for under the hood....the best thing ever ive seen has to be the gunk foamy engine brite. theres instructions on how to clean your bay on se-r.net. but i sprayed that on my engine and rinsed a couple times and wow what a difference lol. try it...you wont be disappointed. i should be sponsored by them or somethin the way i talk :D

What do you guys think of Black Wax? I just used some Black Turtle Wax last week. I think it pretty much sucked, but I was in a hurry and coated it a little too heavy. I tried it because My paint isnt in the best of shape, and when I waxed my car a few months ago I had little peices of white wax sitting in little pin holes on the hood, which annoys you when your car is black. So I figured this would help, but Im not sure if I did it justice, by doing it by hand, and in a hurry.

Regardless of the wax that you use, Surface prep is the most important thing to get a nice looking finish. Wash, paint cleaning clay, polish with an orbital polisher.....Then you can wax the car.
